The Kenton County Public Library is proud to present 1000 Books Before Kindergarten a reading initiative geared toward children ages 0-5 and their caregivers. Help your child develop their vocabulary, build confidence, and be kindergarten ready by taking part in 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. This reading initiative is designed to be self-paced but completed before kindergarten.
How does it work?
Earn prizes as you read together! Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, or toddler with the goal of reaching 1000 books by the time your child starts kindergarten!
For every 100 books, your child reads, they will earn a new goal sticker! At 500 books, your child will receive a special, halfway to goal prize! At 1000 books, your child will receive their final prize, a certificate of completion, and an exclusive invitation to our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten graduation celebration!
